LEIZ Vice-Director Prof Carmen Tanner and her team met with LGT – the world’s largest private bank, owned by members of the Princely House of Liechtenstein – to discuss co-operation potentials. A particular emphasis was placed on “Serious Moral Games” (SMG), computer simulation games which are part of her research portfolio.
SMGs are computer games designed to capture and improve individual competences using interactive media and visualizing techniques. By making use of the “fun” aspect, the intention is to increase an individual’s motivation to engage in learning. The SMGs developed by Carmen Tanner and her team aim to promote leaders’ and employees’ skills through repeated practice and feedback, by raising awareness of “blind spots”, and self-regulation. At present, the phase of exploring the usefulness and efficacy of this tool are being tested.
SMGs can be used by banks and other companies. Carmen Tanner and her team are eager to further discuss the tool with partners from business and academia.
